Infinite gratitude to the talented Vintage Girl Studios for photographing my opening exhibition at the Graduate Providence, Capital Ballroom featuring sculpture, photography, music and merriment!
Edgar Frog: I think I should warn you all, when a vampire bites it, it's never a pretty sight. No two bloodsuckers go the same way. Some yell and scream, some go quietly, some explode, some implode, but all will try to take you with them.

Thanks DJ White Shadow and the lovely Lisa Luna for being such a creative mentor with the Sweet Dreams Society at the Graduate Providence. What an evening at my Black-Tie and Bling Gala Art Opening!

The Graduate Series with musician Ruth Charbonneau from Sex Coffee.
The universe is an ongoing explosion.
That’s where you live.
In an explosion.
Also, we absolutely don’t know what living is.
Sometimes atoms arranged in a certain way just get very haunted.
When an explosion explodes hard enough, dust wakes up and thinks about itself.
And then writes about it.
I am honored that “Guardian” has won first place in the juried exhibition, “Fabulous” at Plymouth Center for the Arts! Dates: January 12 - February 12, 2022

Powerful, beautiful and compassionate, the model portrayed all of these traits at the historic Graduate Providence Hotel. Not so randomly during the shoot, the bartender from the hotel pub walked by and I asked him to pose for a moment. The result was this moment, created with a layered guardian effect. The model guarded by Serendipity, who is guarded by Shadow. All are guarded by André Leon Talley. It’s a beautiful network.
Reflecting on a trip to Piedmont, Wyoming with my family where we explore this historic ghost town. The unimaginable challenges these folks must have endured in the old west is a testament to the human spirit.
Selling art feels good but learning about the story of the client is often just as rewarding. Today, Ali and her husband were walking past my studio window on a staycation at The Graduate, noticed my little sign that read, “Some things are actually OK in the world”, paused, took a pic and then kissed.
I bore witness to their tender exchange and later introduced myself to them in the lobby and invited them into the studio for a chat. Art lovers, parents and badass fitness folks, Ali and Paul were delightful folks to meet! Infinite gratitude for purchasing 4 works of my art including “Two Trees”, a love story.
